Ive managed to buy a 2010 Kona shread off a mate in pretty much spanking condition for £200, he never used it and with me getting back into MTB again after a 5 year hiatus I thought it might be a good starting point.

Now for what i want to do I think im probably going to have to change a few components as its a jump bike, its standard spec, hydraulic discs, Marzocchi DJ etc. I plan on using it for commuting to work which is a 5-10min bike ride and also going up cannock chase with some mates. What do you think would be the best place to start part wise?

If it would cost a fortune to upgrade for what i want it for then i probably wont bother, ill just sell it on ebay or something because ill make more than £200 im sure! Any advice would be much appreciated!
